Where Do Steam Trains Sleep at Night?
Illustrated by Christian Slade
(Random House, 2016)
Have you ever wondered what little trains do
when it’s time for bed? The same things you do!
Freight trains, passenger trains, subways,
trolleys—and more—wash up, have a snack,
load their teddies for story time, and get rocked
to sleep by mommy and daddy trains beneath a
blanket of stars. Little train lovers with a one-
track mind will gain a new affinity for their
bedtime routine when they find they share it with
their favorite vehicles.
“Sayres and Slade move naturally from their truck
lullaby, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? (2012), to
this nighttime serenade to all things train.”
